About QHMC

Queensland Historic Motoring Council Inc. (QHMC)

Queensland Combined Council of Historic Vehicle Clubs Inc. (QCCHVC) was formed in 1968 and was renamed Queensland Historic Motoring Council Inc. (QHMC) in 2009.

Membership is open to all historic motor vehicle clubs, supporting vehicles more than 30 years old. Our membership does not include hot-rod clubs or street-rod clubs as these are catered for under their own organisations.

Affiliated clubs include Veteran, Vintage, Historic and Classic vehicle clubs.

QHMC General Meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of every second month with the first meeting of the year held in January. Committee meetings are held every other month. No meetings are held in December.
